Veterans of the aether revolt: Amonkhet

Standard* Aggro Budget Combo W/B (Orzhov)



Planeswalker (2)

Creature (1)


Our tale brings us out of Kaladesh and in to Amonkhet. Fascinated by the concept of embalm, our heroes befriend the gods to cheat death and bring about the defeat of all who stand in their way. Still roused from the fight for the renegades, the deck splashes black for that extra edge.

- Odric, Lunarch Marshal: The linchpin of the deck. The whole idea is to flood the board with keywords and then play him to project everything onto everyone. Can still win without him but it's the main win-con.

  • Aerial Responder: A solid 2/3 with flying, lifelink, and vigilance. Packs a lot of punch and makes for a great partner card to Odric.

  • Drana, Liberator of Malakir: Another great 2/3 flyer that also provides first strike. Her ability to give +1/+1 counters to attacking creatures if she does damage provides for a good hard ramp if left unchecked.

  • Gifted Aetherborn: A slightly worse Vampire Nighthawk, bringing deathtouch and lifelink to the table.

  • Glint-Sleeve Siphoner: Cheap and Easy menace. Also provides card draw. What's not to like?

  • Lone Rider  Flip: I've always thought Lone Rider should be a rare- I mean, it's so good! First Strike and lifelink that flips into a 4/4 first strike lifelink trample is just brutal. Could do a lot on its own.

  • Aether Poisoner : cheap deathtouch and energy generation, which fuels glint sleeve siphoner and could create a servo with all keywords projected onto it that can also enable Oketra.

  • Sacred Cat turn 1 lifelink with embalm. Better than vampire cutthroat.

  • Oketra the True 4 cost double strike and indestructable that grants vigilance through tokens. Stronk.

WOO! So I brought the deck to Standard showdown today and it freaking killed! 2-0'ed againsg BG zombies, 2-0'ed against BW zombies, 2-1'ed against BG Delirium, and 2-0'ed against UW control. Snagged a bye and then ended up tying in the first place slot with Esper Control. Super solid! No one expected it and I'm feeling great! Thanks for all your support!
